Default The Quasi-Tablet?

"Apple's break-out notebook, says an analyst, may represent a new category: the quasi-tablet. With so much attention focused on the iPad, J.P. Morgan's Mark Moskowitz chose Monday to change the subject. He issued a note to clients that focused instead on the fastest growing member of Apple's Mac line: The MacBook Air."

After owning an 11-inch Macbook Air, and finding that I can indeed do pretty much everything I could do with my heavier and slower Macbook Pro (obviously not the latest model), I can totally understand why this segment is growing. I've even done some minor video editing and iPhoto processing and it is easily able to handle the tasks. And from the looks of the figures in this article, there are plenty of other people who think this and the 13-inch model are just the laptop they need. I don't know about the moniker he chooses to give it though, as it is much more than a "quasi-tablet." ONe thing is sure, you can't argue about the success of the product. What are your thoughts?
